in  Newmarket  of  the  patronage  of  the  said  John,  which  is  known 
as  that  of  St.  Mary,  and  not  as  that  of  SS.  Simon  and  Jude,  in  case 
of  a  vacancy  in  the  said  chapel,  she  would  be  damnified  as  to  her 
presentation  to  the  same,  because  of  its  incorrect  designation  in  the

chapel  of  St.  Mary,  and  was  never  known  as  the  chapel  of  SS.  Simon

the  new  chapel  of  St.  Mary,  and  is  of  the  patronage  of  the  prior  of 
Thetteforth  Monacorum,  annexed  to  the  parish  church  of  Wode  Dytton. 

Writ  of  certiorari,  whereas  the  king  understands  that  the  said  John,  who 
held  of  the  king's  father  in  chief,  was  seised  on  the  day  he  died  of  the 
manors  of  Ixnyng,  cos.  Cambridge  and  Suffolk,  and  Fordham,  co.  Essex, 
which  were  not  contained  in  the  inquisitions  then  made  because 
certain  (cliarters  ?)  concerning  them  were  in  the  custody  of  the  prior  of 
Wilmundeley  and  Giles  Dargentem,  whereof  the  escheator  could  not 
have  inspection,  and  on  the  said  king's  further  mandate,  the 
escheator  signified  that  he  had  inspected  two  charters  exhibited 
by  the  said  prior  and  Giles,  containing  tliat  Regmald  Dargentem 
granted  to  John  his  son  and  Joan  his  wife,  all  the  lands  &c.  which 
he  had  in  Ixnyng  and  Newmarket,  except  a  service  of  thirty  horse 
shoes,  and  all  his  lands  &c.  in  Fordham,  except  the  service  of  a  certain 
tenant,  to  hold  to  them  and  the  heirs  of  their  bodies  ;  which  being 
read  before  men  of  those  towns,  summoned  to  the  mquisition,  they 
said  precisely  that  they  knew  not  those  charters,  that  the  said  John 
and  Joan  entered  by  the  enfeoffment  of  the  said  Reginald  by  other 
charters,  and  that  the  manor  of  Ixnyng  is  not  held  of  the  king  but 
of  some  other,  wherefore  the  wardship  of  the  said  manors  did  not 
pertain  to  X\\v  said  king  by  reason  of  the  minority  of  John  son  and  heir 
of  the  said  Jolm  for  that  turn  {ilia  vice)  ;  whereupon  the  said  prior 
and  Giles  asserted  that  the\'  had  no  other  charters  nor  had  found 
an}'  after  the  death  of  the  said  John  ;  the  escheator  is  commanded

how  to  put  any  interpretation  on  the  words  in  Domesday  Book

not  seem  to  them  that  the  king  should  remove  his  hand  from  the

suing,  who  should  be  heard  thereon.

Transcript  of  writ  to  the  said  justice  &c.  as  above,  20  June,  16  Edward  III, 
on  the  complaint  of  the  abovesaid  WiUiam  de  Bohun,  earl  of 
Northampton,  and  Elizabeth  his  wife,  John  de  Ver,  earl  of  Oxford, 
and  jMaud  his  \Aife,  William  de  Roos  of  Hamelak  and  Margery  his 
wife,  and  John  Tybetot  and  ]Margaret  his  wife,  that,  whereas  the 
king  lately  took  their  homage  for  all  the  lands  &c.  which  the  said 
Giles  held  of  the  king  in  chief  in  England,  and  commanded  their 
several  poinparties  to  be  delivered  to  them,  and  it  was  found,  by 
an  inquisition  taken  in  Ireland,  and  returned  into  the  chancery 
there,  that  the  said  Giles  held  of  the  king  in  chief  on  the  day  he  died 
divers  lands  &c.  in  the  lordship  of  Tothemond  and  elsewhere  in 
Ireland,  and  divers  other  lands  &c.  there  of  other  lords,  whereby 
the  wardship  of  all  the  said  lands  &c.  of  the  said  Giles  in  fee  pertained 
to  the  king,  and  for  that  cause  were  taken  into  the  king's  hand, 
and,  for  a  certain  fixed  sum  to  be  rendered  yearly  to  him,  were 
by  the  king's  council  there  committed  to  Maurice  son  of  Thomas, 
earl  of  Dessemond  ;  and  the  said  earls,  William  and  John,  for  them- 
selves and  their  wives,  made  suit  that  the  said  justice  &c.  might 
take  care  [curaretis)  to  make  their  pourparties  of  the  aforesaid  lands  &c. 
and  deliver  the  same  to  them.  They  |the  said  justices  &c.],  however, 
because  it  was  found  by  a  certain  inquisition,  which  Thomas,  bishop 
of  Hereford,  then  guardian  {custos)  of  Ireland,  demanded  to  be 
taken  at  the  suit  of  the  said  Maurice,  who  alleged  {suggerentis)  that 
all  the  said  lands  &c.  in  Ireland,  of  which  the  said  Giles  died  seised 
in  fee,  were  held  of  the  said  Maurice,  and  not  of  the  king,  and  who 
schemed  (machinantis)  to  disinherit  the  king  of  the  said  wardship, 
that  the  said  lands  &c.  were  held  of  the  said  IMaurice,  on  pretext 
of  which  inquisition  he  detains  and  occupies  them,  applying  the 
issues  to  his  own  use,  have  not  taken  care  {non  cwastis)  to  make 
the  pourparties  of  the  said  earls,  William  and  John,  and  of  their  \^'ives, 
of  the  said  lands  &c.  as  the  custom  is,  and  to  deliver  the  same  to 
them,  although  the  king  and  his  progenitors  have  been  seised  without 
interruption  of  the  wardship  and  marriage  of  the  heirs  of  the  said 
inheritance,  and  of  the  wardship  of  the  lands  &c.  thereof,  from 
the  time  the  same  came  to  the  hands  of  the  ancestors  of  the  said  Giles, 
and  to  those  heirs  who  were  minors,  and  of  the  homage  of  the  same 
heirs  successively,  from  heir  to  heir,  as  fully  appears  bj'  the  rolls 
and  memoranda  in  the  king's  treasury  in  Ireland,  but  have  permitted 
the  same  lands  &c.  to  be  detained  for  a  long  time  out  of  the  king's 
hand,  and  still  permit  it,  to  the  king's  hurt  and  damage,  and  to 
the  manifest  disherison  of  his  crown  ;  wherefore  the  king  has  been 
prayed  to  cause  fitting  remedy  to  be  provided,  as  well  for  himself 
as  for  the  said  heirs.  They  are  commanded,  if  on  examination  of 
the  rolls  and  other  memoranda,  they  find  that  the  said  lands  &c. 
in  the  parts  of  Tothemond  and  elsewhere  in  Ireland  are  held  of  the 
king,  or  partly  of  him  and  partly  of  others,  and  that,  by  reason 
of  the  king's  prerogative,  after  the  deaths  of  the  said  Giles  and  his 
ancestors,  the. king  and  his  progenitors  were  seised  of  the  wardship 
of  all  the  said  lands  &c.,  and  of  the  homage  of  the  said  heirs 
in  times  past,  to  cause  the  said  lands  &c.  to  be  resumed 
into  the  king's  hand,  and  to  cause  due  and  speedy  justice  to  be  done 
to  the  said  earls,  \\'illiam  and  John,  and  their  wives,  on  their  suit 


EDWARD    III.  lt!»

lands  &c.  from  the  time  of  the  said  death,  certifying  into  the

Proof  of  age,  27  March,  12  Edward  III  {fragment). 
Middlesex.  John  Martyn,  knight,  aged  40  and  more,  says  that  the  said 
Edward  was  22  years  of  age  on  31  January  last,  for  he  was 
born  at  Feltham  in  the  said  county,  and  baptized  in  the  church 
there  on  the  said  day,  8  Edward  II ;  and  this  he  knows  because  on 
the  same  day  that  the  said  Edward  was  baptized  he  saw  king 
Edward  II  come  to  the  said  church  at  Feltham  to  lift  the  said 
Edward  from  the  sacred  font,  and  to  place  his  name  upon  him  ; 
which  fact  the  said  John  caused  to  be  written  in  a  certain  calendar, 
and  so  the  said  Edward's  age  is  sufficiently  certain  to  him. 

Geoffrey  Pellam,  aged  56  years  and  more,  agrees,  and  knows  it 
because,  in  the  said  church  on  the  same  day,  after  the  baptism  of 
the  said  Edward,  at  the  request  of  certain  of  his  friends  he  had 
pardon  from  king  Edward  II  for  a  certain  outlawry  for  the  death 
of  John  le  Ferour,  for  which  he  was  indicted,  and  by  the  date  of  his 
charter  the  truth  of  the  said  Edward's  age  is  sufficiently  evident 
to  him. 

William  le  Hale,  aged  47  years  and  more,  agrees,  and  knows  it 
because  on  the  said  day  he  was  in  the  town  of  Feltham  with  the 
said  John  Martyn  and  several  others,  when  king  Edward  II  came 
to  the  church  to  lift  the  said  Edward  from  the  sacred  font  .... 
and  he  asked  the  said  John  to  cause  the  said  day  of  birth  to  be  Avritten 
in  his  calendar. 

John  Cosyn,  aged  50  years  and  more,  agrees,  and  knows  it  because 
on  the  same  day  he  was  at  Westminster  before  Sir  William    de 

Bereford,    then    a    justice        common    bench,    in    an 

inquisition  between  Gilbert  Binorth  and  John  Bile,  and  then  in 
the  night,  when  he  had  come  to  his  house,  he  heard  from  [his]  wife 
that  John  le  Ha[uberger]  had  a  son,  to  whom  king  Edward  II  had 
given  {imposuerat)  his  name,  and  by  the  verdict  and  record  of  the 
inquisition 

Robert  de  Erllesdon  (?),  aged  53  years  and  more,  says  the  like, 
and  knows  it  because,  on  the  same  day,  he     ...     .     with  the

187.  Thomas  de  Saundervill. 

Writ  of  phnius  certiorari  to  the  escheator,  on  the  petition  of  Thomas,  son 
and  heir  of  the  said  Thomas,  showing  that  whereas  upon  its  being  found 
by  an  inquisition,  made  after  liis  said  father's  death  and  returned  into  the 
chancery,  that  the  said  Thomas  the  father  did  not  hold  any  lands  &c.  of  the 
king  in  cliief  in  the  escheator's  bailiwick,  the  king  ordered  him  not  to 
intermeddle  further  with  the  said  lands  &c.,  and  the  said  Thomas 
the  son  for  a  long  time  held  them  peacefully ;  but  some,  alleging 
in  the  king's  chancery  that  the  said  Thomas  the  elder  did  hold  of 
the  king  in  chief,  the  truth  having  been  concealed,  procured  a  wiit 
of  diem  clausit  extremum  by  pretext  whereof  the  escheator  again 
took  the  said  lands  &c.  into  the  king's  hand  and  still  detains  them, 
and  prajdng  the  Idng  to  remove  liis  hand  from  the  same ;  6  October,

Mourtone  and  Enedeborne.  A  messuage,  two  carucates  and  two  virgates 
of  land,  wliich  by  his  death  were  taken  into  the  king's  hand,  and 
delivered  afterwards  to  Thomas,  his  son  and  heir,  by  the  king's 
writ  de  non  intromittendo  dated  28  May,  6  Edward  III.  The  said 
Thomas  (the  father)  held  no  lands  &c.  of  the  king  in  chief  in  Berks, 
or  elsewhere,  as  the  jury  imderstand.  The  said  Thomas  the  son, 
after  the  removal  of  the  king's  hand  from  the  said  lands  &c.  held 
them  peacefully  until  the  escheator,  by  pretext  of  the  king's  writ, 
and  for  no  other  cause,  took  them  into  the  king's  hand.  No  one 
else  had  any  estate  in  the  said  lands  &c.  which  are  held  of  Robert 
de  Clyfford,  lord  of  the  honour  of  Skryptone  {sic)  in  Cravene,  by 
service  of  three  parts  of  a  knight's  fee.

messuage,  by  reason  of  the  said  Thomas's  death,  do  not  pertain  to 
the  king,  because  the  wardship  of  tenements  so  held  of  the  king

king  but  to  the  next  friends  of  the  said  heirs  to  whom  the  said

there  was  no  answer  to  the  king  from  that  messuage,  except  the 
rent  aforesaid,  because  it  never  came  into  the  king's  hand  through 
the  death  of  any  tenant,  so  that  no  issues  could  be  levied,  out  of
